Download PDF for this date

The fact that D. W. Griffith, the famous movie-director, paid a visit to the Mollie Picon Theatre, where he witnessed and admired the performance of The Girl of Yesterday, has given rise to rumors along Second Avenue, that the noted Jewish comedienne, Mollie Picon may be given a contract to play in the movies.

Miss Picon, however, denied this rumor declaring that she will continue to appear in the Folks Theatre, where The Girl of Yesterday has been showing successfully for many weeks.
